Hawks Vs. Thunder Score: Oklahoma City leads Atlanta 51-47 at halftime

The Oklahoma City Thunder have come back to take a 51-47 lead over the Atlanta Hawks at halftime. Kevin Martin has 22 points in only 15 minutes, and is 4-5 from three point range. Jeff Teague is leading the Hawks with 14 points on 5-6 shooting to lead the Hawks, and also has three rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Atlanta had a 30-22 lead after the first quarter, but the Thunder came back to take the lead right before halftime. Oklahoma City is shooting 50 percent from deep as a team, paced by Martin's shooting. Kevin Durant has 13 points and six rebounds, and Russell Westbrook has four points and seven assists.

Al Horford has eight points and four rebounds for the Hawks, followed by Ivan Johnson with six points. Atlanta is only 3-12 from behind the arc, and will need to improve on that rate if they want to stay with the Thunder in the second half.

Josh Smith did not make the trip to Oklahoma. He's currently nursing a sprained ankle.
